WATCH: Dana Loesch's epic monologue on the war being waged on the 1st Amendment

Tonight on The Glenn Beck Program, guest host Dana Loesch discussed the recent attacks from the left on the 1st Amendment rights of Americans.

On August 1st, while the mainstream media was focused on Michael Phelps' gold medal count, the implementation of the Obamacare mandate that requires religious institutions to violate their conscience and provide birth control for their employees took effect.

"It's discrimination if you force an employee to violate their religious beliefs. So what right does an employee have to force an employer to violate theirs? Where is the protection for the job creator?" Dana asked on GBTV tonight.

One would think legislating the end of religious liberty would be front page news - apparently not.

Similarly, Dana notes how the massive attendance of 'Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day' was ignored by the media. However, the 'kiss-in' that was organized by gay activist groups was widely covered, despite it's low turn-out.

"I don't get that, by the way, the demand by the militant gay and lesbian faction to not judge them by their sexual proclivities, but then they demand that you pay attention to their protests done with said sexual proclivities," Dana noted.

Every organization, from Chick-fil-A to the Catholic Church, that tries to stand firm in their values is getting hit by the Obama Administration and the far left. Those are just a small handful of the many examples Dana uses to point out the war being waged against our 1st Amendment rights.

And if the attacks on Dan Cathy and the Catholic Church aren't backwards enough for you, while Democrat mayors like Emanuel and Bloomberg attack Chick-fil-A and the size of your soda, they're also trying to force mother's to breast feed their newborns. Mother's who are recovering from childbirth in hospitals that opt-in to this law would have to provide medical reasons from their doctors in order to get access to baby formula. So you can definitely have access to free birth control, but baby formula - not so much.

Yes, while new mother's are busy bonding with the new additions to their families, Michael Bloomberg wants to made getting baby formula as difficult as possible to nudge new mothers into breast feeding. So, while it's okay for employers to be forced to provide every form of birth control access possible to their employees for free, mom can't make her own decision about whether or not she should would prefer to use baby formula over breastfeeding.

Or, as Dana put it, "According to Democrats, abortions is healthier for babies than formula. Just like Obamacare, government knows best, right?"

But like Glenn has been pointing out lately, these guys will destroy themselves. Hypocrisies like those noted in Dana's monologue take away any long term credibility these big government-loving liberals hope to have with the American people.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
